StarWars

May the fourth be with you

May the fourth be with you

Padme...her kind of allies.

Leia...definitely her enemies.

Rey...definitely her enemies.

Visually interesting and well rendered but conceptually odd to me.

How I’m gonna choose to interpret it is padme facing down things she still opposed. The clones fueled the republics war on the separatists which padme was avidly and very vocally against. Not the same type of conflict that Leia and Rey face but it’s still padmes kind of adversity

Padme is the hottest Star Wars girl.

Change my mind.

Heathrow Airport, this morning... happy SW day!

Alderaan cancelled... Why they gotta hurt us like that...

Alderaan was destroyed in a mining accident. Probably had to do with the terrorists that call themselves "rebels".

Why would anyone want to go to Jakku?!

Everything about this is great. Flight numbers are on point too!

As a Brit I don't have many reasons to be proud of Heathrow but this is definitely one of them.

Kinda nervous to share but I painted this: "Lord Vader"

Not much of a comparison but certainly better than my attempts of drawing a lampshade on a cloaked figure with a red sword.

It's still drying and needs it's varnish still... But I think this is still decent enough to share with you guys

I'm sure it's a lovely lamp shade :)

This is lovely! I’m an artist myself and think you did a great job. Don’t be nervous to share your work, if anything you’ll get decent feedback, at worst.

Good luck with all your future projects!

WHY DO YOU HAVE TO RUB IT IN? It hurts... :c

Is it just me or does Lea's face look kinda off?

Okay, but do people realize this was never going to happen?

I feel like the ST hate crowd thinks this is somehow JJ/RJ's fault.

Lucas had 30+ years to make a 7-9 while the actors were still able to be main characters. Even then, Lucas has said if he ever made 7-9 it'd still be about the younger generation (focusing on young teens).

Not only could the OT cast no longer be action stars because they're 65-75 by the time 2015 came around, but in what world would that be a good story? "Hey kids, let's go see the new Star Wars! The main characters are old people that I used to watch!"

You guys realize Star Wars was for kids right? Always has been. They were never going to make Luke, Han, Leia the focus of the films after the Disney acquisition.

Carrie could barely walk on her own, Harrison looks like he was about to have a heart attack in TFA trying to run around, and Hamill wasn't even able to do many of his own (very minimal) action scenes in TLJ. None of them are in particularly great shape - but aside from that, they're old.

I would have LOVED to see this. But that doesn’t mean it would’ve worked or been a good story in reality with them being the ages they were.

Again, Lucas had the chance to make films where they could be that badass trio you imagined. But the films Lucasfilm made starting in 2015 were never going to focus on those characters.

An attempt to age her from a differebt pic, perhaps? I'm more drawn to the fact that it looks like she got into her mom's wardrobe circa Attack of the Clones.

Disney: Hey, you're really doing a good job.

Disney: Thanks! That means so much coming from you!

Arent they still different studios doe? Its like coworkers congratulating each other on making the boss more money

They are. It's basically like two authors being under the same publisher.

Don't give that lightsaber to Iron Man, he's just gonna toss it over his shoulder!

Use your harpoons and tow cables!

I was waiting for the dog to fall over.

"Quack, get ready to fire that tow cable!"

I was also waiting for that. I imagined it being a random guy pushing the dog over.

How meta can you be

Lego Trench Run Kinetic Sculpture

The turrets following the X Wing is a nice touch. I remember a similar one posted a while back with WW1 planes, this is an awesome redesign.

How do you think they made this? A factory?

That is pretty cool. You should put this in /sub/starwarsgifs too. We don't see a lot of Lego stuff there

Both made by JK Brickworks.

Just found this beauty in a flea market on my birthday

Great find. I used to have a VCR in storage just in case I ever stumbled upon something like this at a flea market. There’s something nostalgic about watching the original trilogy on tape.

Also, Happy Birthday!

Happy birthday!

Stolen My Heart! Vader’s Dream - A Visitation From Padme by Kirk Reinert

This makes me feel so sad.

Kinda adds to the tragedy of Vader. Puts into perspective a little more.

The clone wars tv show makes it pretty clear they’re in love which is nice. It’s a really nice supplement to the movies if you haven’t seen it. I highly highly highly recommend it.

If only they seemed like they were in love in the movies...

Co-worker found a creative way to decorate her son's therapy helmet

But can he spit holograms out of his mouth?

That kid is probably speaking the same language as R2D2.

Helmets like these are often used to protect a kid's head after a surgery and/or help shape it properly. I'd assume that's the case here, though of course I can't be certain.

What is a "therapy helmet"?
